Up for sale here is this set of 2 vintage Leak TL/12 Plus tube amplifiers, with two Leak Varislope III tube preamplifiers, with the power cords and octal connector cables. These came from a local tube guy, and came to me just as you see them–I have not swapped out any tubes or done anything else to them. These are in fantastic condition, but here are some things to note. Amps are not identical–one is a slightly different color than the other, and they have different voltage options–one is 105v/110v/124v and one is 110v/117v/124v. Both are currently set at 124v. Please note that these do not appear to have 100v/220v/240v options. Both amps DO NOT have bottom covers. There are no top covers/cages. Physical condition is extremely good, but these do have light overall wear and a few minor scrapes/marks. Both amps include all tubes, but the tubes are untested. I did not swap any out. The rectifiers are 5V4s. Underneath, the amps look good and look pretty original. One has a Beaver capacitor in it that’s probably not original, and that amp has two resistors right by the Beaver cap that look damaged. There is also a Plessey electrolytic cap that looks damaged. Both preamps have their top/bottom covers, but one has no screws for the covers. That one has both tubes in it, and they appear to be original, and are untested. I don’t know if the other one has tubes, but I would assume it does. Preamps do not match–one has white knobs and one has black knobs. Otherwise they look pretty similar. Cables are included and seem fine–they are not frayed or cracked. I will guarantee the transformers to be good. This is a really rare pair of amps–don’t miss it! Please see my pictures for details. If you have any questions, please ask. I have more amplifiers and other vintage electronics listed–feel free to take a look! This item is in the category “Consumer Electronics\Vintage Electronics\Vintage Audio & Video\Vintage Amplifiers & Tube Amps”. The seller is “peace.love.and.music” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.

Before you call me crazy for the list price, please read below carefully… The upgrade started with a full factory condition 60-year-old Leak Stereo 50 from my personal collection, which I decided to be giving all the best possible components that an amp can ever get. All electrolytic capacitors are changed to Rubycon Black Gate F and Elna Cerafine. 3x 47+47uF 500V Elna Cerafine. 4x 220uF 50V Black Gate F. 2x 47uF 25V Black Gate F. 4x vintage NOS Jensen Aluminium PIO coupling capacitors for the power tubes. Vintage Philips HQ caps for the preamp tubes. NOS Telefunken GZ34 / 5AR4 West Germany rectifier tube. Quartett of Mullard Blackburn Gr. Britain EL34 power tubes (3x XF3, 1x XF2). Vintage 1x Mullard Blackburn ECC83, 2x RFT Germany ECC83. Genuine WBT NextGen 0708cu banana speaker terminals. The amplifier is perfect working and with these components combines the classic British tube warmth with the focus, precision, detail, soundstaging of the best modern amps. The Black Gate, Cerafine caps work wonders in terms of supreme sound quality, controlled bass, dynamics, while the Mullard EL34 tube together with the Jensen caps provide the amplifier an authentic, palpable, lifelike sound that is hard to believe. I was finetuning the sound using a pair of JBL 4343 studio monsters. Now about the German components: The Telefunken GZ34 and the 2x RFT ECC83 are installed with a good intent, to bring some more precision and control to the sound… Not too little, not too much, just the right balance (they are needed there, believe me). With the Mullard ECC83 on the forefront, match made in heaven. Again, the components and the tubeset is not installed on the look what I found in the closet basis! I was spending weeks of listening, then tube rolling and changing components to get to this sound signature. TCC original 16+16 and 32+32 caps back along with NOS Philips 100uF 50V and put Roederstein (ERO) coupling caps, then install a quartet of NOS Siemens EL34 tubes and maybe a new production JJ G34 and off you get an instant EUR1000 off the price… And also majority of the sound magic off as well! You decide, if you like this way or the other, please let me know! Well let me tell you a story: a month ago a nice little amp, called Marantz 8B walked through my door onto the bench and with a full Black Gate upgrade now sounds better to my ears than the Leak of course talking about a couple more thousands of Euros too.. Amp is EU voltage: 210-250Volts! This is a genuine sales and thus I guarantee that what is in the pictures is exactly what you get unless if you want that EUR1000 off and all those expensive parts out… I do guarantee that you will receive a perfectly working amplifier, that is in a decent original factory visual condition (considering 60years of paint on it, obviously not sratch-free, see pictures for reference).
